"Creativity is intelligence having fun." - Albert Einstein

Welcome Children’s Art Lovers!

Thank you for stopping in! 💕 I'm Valeria Wicker, an author and illustrator of children’s books. I have been doodling and making things since I was a little girl and ultimately graduated from an Italian Art school. After moving to the U.S. inspiration led me from wood carving to pottery to painting to ultimately discovering my true love – picture books. I was discovered by James Patterson and his children’s imprint JIMMY Patterson Books who ultimately acquired my debut picture book THE UGLY DOODLES featuring a young artist and her creative journey.
I spend most of my time at my desk trying to tame my own doodles and meet deadlines while, simultaneously being a wife, a mom of 5 children, one Labrador, one cat and two bunnies.

------- Why children’s art? -------

When I started illustrating for children, I was stunned by the shortage of children’s book illustration available to purchase. My children have so many favorite picture books and seeing them sitting there, admiring the illustrations, always made me wish the purchase of such artwork would be much more accessible for parents to decorate bedroom walls with. Not to mention, the ones available for purchase, weren’t always mom-of-five budget friendly.

As a parent and Illustrator my goal is to give everyone the opportunity to cherish my art by offering a line of products ranging from original artwork to print to digital downloads accommodating different budgets and needs.

DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM ART?

At this time, I am not able to accept custom orders.

ARE THE OIL PAINTINGS FRAMED?

Because everyone has a different taste when it comes to home décor, all my paintings will arrive to you unframed. This will give you freedom to choose the best framing options for your home. You can purchase custom frames from arts and crafts stores such as Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.

WHY ARE OIL PAINTINGS MORE EXPENSIVE?

The reason behind this is really the amount of time it goes into each painting. Oil paint dries very slowly and for this reason and as explained above, if an artist works with the layer technique, he/she will have to wait until a layer is dry before adding the next layer of paint. This slows down the process of production significantly and makes an oil painting much more valuable than any other traditional medium.
Oil artist use a specific formula to calculate a fair price for their paintings. In that formula they carefully consider different factors including time employed in production, material expenses and gallery fees is applicable.

WHAT DOES 'ORIGINAL' MEANS?

It means you are not getting a copy or reproduction of the artwork. You are getting the real, hand made artwork from my studio straight to your home.
